The Best Low pH Car Wash Presoaks

Low pH (acid) presoaks are formulated using a variety of builders and surface active agents (surfactants). Low pH products are effective at removing inorganic material such as minerals, sand, silt, rust and scale. Low pH products are essential for removal of “eyebrows” on glass, cleaning and brightening metal. Additional applications for low pH presoaks include wheel, glass and metal equipment cleaning.

Road film is a combination of organic and inorganic contaminants. Typical road film composition can include dust, sand, dirt, rubber particles, soot, carbon deposits, tree sap/resin, biological matter, minerals, grease and oils. Using a High pH (acid) presoak in combination with a Low pH presoak ensures a cleaner car surface for all other carwash applications such as protectants and drying agents to perform better.

Which low pH presoak is best for your cleaning needs? It depends on location and season. There are over 100 different types of soils in the United States. Water hardness in the United States can vary from city to city. Additionally, in the summer and fall months when river flows and lake levels are lower, cities may switch to ground water pumped from wells which tends to have a higher hardness level. Our low pH presoaks are formulated with different builders, surfactants and additives to work in different locations and seasons.
